"The camp experience enriches lives and changes the world," according to the American Camping Association(ACA). Fostering a sense of caring community, offering educational and social development, and simply providing a safe and fun place for children to enjoy, are just a few things that summer camps offer. There are literally thousands of summer camp options available to children each year. From day camps to summer long adventures overseas, camps offer a wide variety of choices, benefits, and costs. Learning about your options, "as well as your child's personality" according to the ACA, is the key to identifying the right camp program for your child.
